This post is going up significantly later than I had planned. See I created this card Friday night and went to bed with the feeling that I was starting to get a sore throat. Lo and behold, I woke up Saturday morning with a fever, body aches, monster sore throat, and a horrible headache. This continued through Sunday causing me to miss Easter. Yes, I missed Easter! I managed to get out of bed long enough to see the kids find their Easter baskets, and take pictures of them dressed for church, but otherwise I pretty laid in bed all day! Finally made it to the doctors on Monday, so I have medicine now, but the darn sore throat is just not going away! So bad that it is hard to find anything I can eat without pain...and this is which pain medicine from the doctor! Ugh! Anyway that is my sob story and hence why this post is late!
See it is late because I wanted to get it posted at the beginning of the Card Patterns Sketch Challenge #112 because Paper Makeup Stamps is the sponsor of the challenge! So make sure to join in the fun and get a chance to win a gift certificate to PMS!
I pulled out Billy & Bianca the adorable love bunnies from the Retro Cutie Critters line at Paper Makeup Stamps. I got my paper for my new design team, Paper Temptress, and just had to try some out. So I stamped them on the Beargrass Glimmer paper...it has a beautiful shimmer to it that you can see in the detail shot. I embossed the image and then watercolored it with markers/ink pads and an aquabrush. It worked beautifully and maintained that beautiful shimmer even under the watercoloring. Can't wait to work more with all of my paper from Paper Temptress! The sentiment is from the Verve Anniversary Birds set.
So make sure you check out what the Card Patterns Design Team created and link up your creation to join in and have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the Paper Makeup Stamps store! Thinking healthy thoughts and thanks for checking out my kind of engineering!
